MTF Research Symposium - registration open

Each MTF event is accompanied by a research symposium for discussion and the formation of new research projects at the intersection of music and technology.

The #MTFResearch Symposium begins at 12:00 on Sept. 6 and ends at 12:00 September 7, with guest speakers and wide-ranging discussion on a range of interdisciplinary and cutting-edge topics:

- Music AI
- Human-Music Interaction
- Radical Inclusion
- Curated Music Exhibitions and Digital Archives
- Music Rights and Blockchain

It will also track the impact of the Manifesto for Music Technology Research, which was initiated five years ago. One of the authors of that statement, Nancy Baym, will lead the symposium and deliver the keynote. She is principal researcher at Microsoft Research New England and research affiliate Comparative Media Studies/Writing, MIT.

You can register for the Creative Labs (a 24-hour event, September 8-9).
